I knew I choose the wrong career choice

I know this is way off topic, but oh well

As a software developer I make a nice living, I have a nice house, own a nice car, have money in the bank, I really don't have too many wants.  But I now know I made the wrong career choice.  Today it was announced that Alex Rodriguez is going to re-sign with the New York Yankees for a reported 280 million over 10 years (info here). 

Anyone that knows me knows I am a huge baseball fan.  I am I pretty sure I could have played pro baseball, if it were not for the height issue (5' 8''), lack of the ability to throw a fastball over 80mph, or that I am not big or strong enough to hit a baseball out of the park.  But aside from that, I could have made it.  Hey look at Marcus Giles, he made it (btw, I am actually a huge MG fan).

But really, are pro athletes really worth 28 million dollars a season....?  Guess so.  Oh well, maybe in the next life I will make better career choices.  Or, there is always the kid, maybe he can make me my millions. :)

Till next time,
